Letter to US Financial Times explaining why USA went to war in Iraq

Chicago USA Saturday PM 18 June 2011

Editors, UK Financial Times


A letter in the Saturday 18 June UK Financial Times "The real grounds for war with Iraq" says they were "the now disproven, misleading claims made by the US and Britain of Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction...." The writer concludes wishing "commentators on contemporary affairs would avoid distorting patently accepted historical truths."

The only listing of the reasons for the US going to war in Iraq that mean anything were the 1300 words of the House/Senate joint resolution of October 10 2002, "To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq"

. Many wish objectors to those statements would quote the actual sentence or phrase from that document they consider not a "historical truth."
